The 42mm F1.0 image is a parody one. The rumour pages have one at the top as standard.

It would be a nice lens to have if it ever came true and if I could ever afford it :)

I love their immediate disclaimer:

43mm is diagonal of FF sensor so 42mm would make perfect normal length...

Bingo! I'd love to have one. Wish it were true.

In that case you'll have to go with 40/2.8 for now ;)

Sorry, I'd hoped it would be more obvious ;-)a

The rumours pages have been running since 2004 (long before all the xxxrumors.com sites) and the 'warning' is really to remind some that rumours are just that ;-)a


bye for now

I did. It's a nice "little" lens. But a 42/1.0 would be on another (red ring) planet! (smile)

It might make SOME sense...

For say, cinematography and that, a super fast prime could be a valuable creative tool....

A 42mm aperture doesn't sound that unreasonable.

I hope they make it, it'd be quite the unique lens...

At f/1.0 it's not expected to be sharp anyway but it would sure make for dreamy photos with (hopefully) creamy bokeh...


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!
